Playing a detailed turn base strategy game sounds boring and mundane to most viewers, but all it takes is study and you could have a game with HUGE replay ability for a long time that's actually very entertaining.
About two weeks ago I wanted a game where I could sit back and click. Stress free and play a game at my own pace. Well, Civilization 6 is not stress free, infact trying to control the world using one of the five victory conditions is hard and action packed !....... The AI is extremely intelligent and EVERY country by itself has a motive at working diligently for one of the five conditions to win. It actually competes against itself, attacking each other and spreading its own religion or being first in the race to colonize Mars.
You start as just another kid on the block, at harder difficulties at a disadvantage. If you play it smart you could totally avoid war completely the entire game, but even this could be a challenge because some will call you weak and threaten your peacefulness. You WILL BE HATED, the best you could hope for is avoidance from being attacked by trading, offering gifts or deals, and most of all stay away from their borders because it will know what your planning ahead. This part is amazing how it knows !
You can keep other civilizations at bay but you cant avoid your military. This has to be kept strong because of unexpected barbarian attacks, their rootless and relenting and will stay aggressive until you locate and destroy there encampments. You must stop EVERYTHING and search them out before too much damage is done. You better have an army every place in your kingdom !
At random and not so random times other Leaders will pop up in dialogue and tell you where you stand or offer advice……. The game constantly knows ahead of time what your planning. They say you can make great friendships where others will defend you but that’s to advanced for me at this time. I see options but that’s to complicated.
Before I started, I watched a two hour "how to play video"…. It's almost necessary but I found it enjoyable as much as watching a good movie. They don't contain spoilers or considered cheating because every campaign is hugely random generated. You'll find winning is all in the small details of keeping EVERY city healthy so it's able to produce without working at a snails pace.
I started three times at standard difficulty, each learning by my mistakes. The last I decided on a Military Domination Victory and changed to Science mid stream…. Bad idea !..... Other countries didn't forget the carnage I dealt and I didn't properly win them over, never the less I got destroyed. I allowed my strong military get weak in the process…. It still could have worked but I didn't know better.
Tonight I'll start again with an all out Domination campaign. I'll keep their cities instead of selling them and dominate the world !!!!...... I can't wait !
Civ 5 is no longer considered better than 6, that's old news that's considered false or preference.
